Each winter, colds and flu put millions of people out of commission. Unless you live in a bubble, you’ll be exposed to viruses. Minimizing your risk of infection or knowing what to take to beat unwanted bugs is essential. Especially during the holiday season!
While there are many effective prevention strategies, the most important of all is maintaining a strong immune system. That way, your body will fight off an infection before it gets out of control and makes you sick.
Perhaps the most popular immune-booster is Echinacea Purpurea. In 2012, scientists at the Cardiff University School of Biosciences completed the largest clinical study on Echinacea purpurea in history using A.Vogel’s Echinaforce®, made from fresh organic, GMO free plants. The study proved that Echinaforce® can be taken daily for up to four months to significantly reduce chances of catching a virus by over 50%.
This research also showed that this particular preparation of Echinacea acts adaptively according to the health of the individual. When we’re stressed and run down, Echinacea will work harder for us than when we’re strong and happy.
The other good news is that Echinaforce® protects the entire family including kids 2+ and pregnant and nursing moms*.
Echinaforce® Hot Drink – Proven as effective as prescription medication… but better!
In a 2015 study, a powerful hot drink combination of Echinacea and Elderberry was shown to be as effective as the standard prescription influenza medication Oseltamivir with 65% less complication risks (pneumonia, sinusitis, bronchitis).
Early treatment of influenza is critical for shortening the duration and severity of symptoms and also for reducing the spread. Echinaforce® Hot Drink is as powerful as a prescription medication, yet it is available over the counter and thus could be used at the first signs of symptoms.
Echinaforce® Sore Throat Spray – Spray the pain away!
At the first tell-tale tickle at the back of the throat, try Echinaforce® Sore throat spray. This combination of Echinacea, Peppermint and Sage is fast acting, cooling and soothing to the throat. It has been clinically shown to be effective and to have an anesthetic effect that is as powerful as the leading pharmaceutical sore throat medication in Europe.
Echinaforce® Sore throat spray is effective against the pain of swollen tonsils, pharyngitis and general throat pain and inflammation. It has a pleasant peppermint fresh taste. The long nozzle is particularly practical for applying the spray to the back of the throat, where the pain is located.
